RingPlus Adds My First Phone Free Plan For Kids, Runs Memorial Day Sale Until May 31
Sprint MVNO RingPlus has included a free plan for kids to its regular plan offerings. The new plan named My First Phone Free Plan is available for new activations only to customers who want to get a free service for their children. In addition, the carrier is offering a Memorial Day Sale that includes discounts on phones and add-ons. RingPlus Memorial Day Sale is good through May 31, 2016 at 6PM Pacific.
RingPlus My First Phone Free Plan
My First Phone Free Plan – for new activations; includes 200 minutes, 200 texts and 200 MB of LTE data. The plan doesn’t include overages. If kids run out of talk, text or MB of data, they will simply be left without until the next monthly cycle. However, if parents want them to have additional service, they can purchase the Kid-sized Add-Ons. Add-ons for kids do not renew automatically so parents are getting them only when needed. The plan requires $10 top up at sign up that will be used for paying for the Kid-sized add-ons and other services. Another $10 will be charged automatically only when or if ever balance reaches $0.
The Kid-Sized Add-Ons are 60% off regular overages rates. Customers can choose from:
